Nashville, TN (October 19, 2012) — THE ROYS have been named Inspirational Country Music’s Bluegrass Artist of the Year
for 2012, giving them back-to-back wins in this category.  “We sing
what is in our hearts and true to our Faith,” comments Elaine Roy.  “It
was a very strong group of nominees – everyone deserved this award,”
notes her brother Lee.  “Elaine and I are so honored to win this for the
second year in a row.”  THE ROYS were named the organization’s Bluegrass Artist of the Year in 2011 and Duo of the Year in 2010 and 2009.
The brother/sister duo kicked off the 20th Anniversary Faith, Family & Country™ Awards Show with a performance of the title track from their current EP, NEW DAY DAWNING (Rural Rhythm).  The disc debuted at Number 2 on the Billboard Bluegrass Albums Chart in early September and two weeks later had risen to Number 1 on Amazon’s Bluegrass Best Sellers list.
Last night’s Awards ceremony was hosted by Inside Edition’s Megan Alexander and GAC’s Storme Warren
and held at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville.  THE ROYS
shared the stage with luminaries Mac Powell (Third Day), Andy Griggs,
John Berry, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver and more.  The
nationally-televised program aired on TCT Television Network, Total
Living Network, NRB Network and Golden Eagle Broadcasting.  Fans should
check local listings for repeat air dates and times.  Nashvillians can
view the show on WKRN-TV (Channel 2) on December 23.
